New Leavenworth Tasting Room

New Leavenworth Tasting Room

Tasting rooms abound in Leavenworth, Washington. The North Cascades town of Leavenworth, Wash., draws tourists from around the state and now is home to several winery tasting rooms.

So Hard Row to Hoe has opened a tasting room in the Bavarian-style tourist town of Leavenworth. One of the winery’s longtime employees lives in Wenatchee and was interested in operating a satellite tasting room for Hard Row to Hoe. At the same time, a perfect location opened up on Front Street, so the new tasting room became a natural.

Leavenworth is becoming a bit of a haven for tasting rooms, with about 10 open now, and it’s only a couple of hours’ drive from Seattle – a much easier haul than Manson.

“A lot of our wine club members will find it much easier to visit us in Leavenworth than to come all the way to Chelan,” Phelps said.
